  1. Ensure MACOS Notes Sync

    I fully understand to integrate the MS products to interact with ToDo’s and MS Notes. However, please consider as well, that the local MAC Reminder and the local MAC Notes become part of, or at least, part of the sync. Thank you.

  2. Webversion tasks and notes only available with School/work-account

    Make access to web tasks and notes available for personal users. When Clicking on task / notes from WITHIN THE NEW OUTLOOK you are directed to the outlook.com version. But this is only accessible with a school or work account. When trying to enter your personal account, the message appears that this this service is'n accessible? Why? Please fix this!

  5. Block Sender

    In Outlook, the feature 'Block Sender' doesn't work, but it would be fantastic if it did. I have blocked several political ads/emails, all containing the same email address. However, this does not in any way block future emails from the sender(s). I have set up rules, marked as junk, and block senders, but none of these features work. I'm confident that if Microsoft were able to block political ad emails, Outlook would become the de' facto winner in this category.

  6. Add the find relates messages from sender to Outlook for Mac..

    There are some features in the Microsoft version that make search for messages easier. The ability to color internal company email is great. In Mac the categories work to do the same.

    Also, the right click on a message and "find related messages or all messages from sender.." is a great Windows feature that I am sure Mac users would appreciate.

    Thank!

  7. Conversation view and hidden reading pane behavior

    In web I have reading pane hidden. When I click the item full conversation opens up not only last email. It would be perfect to bring to macos app as well. I would switch to native app. That's a showstopper for me as a newly Gmail migrated user.

  9. Add Skype integration. Where did it go?

    Skype integration into the meeting creation tab was one-click and easy to do.

  10. Change Calendar Layout to Match Calendar Layout in Outlook for Windows

    Change the calendar pane to appear on Mac in the same layout it does on Windows PC, where names are on the horizontal axis and times on the vertical.

    The calendar organization on Windows shows each person’s calendar name on the y axis and the times on the x axis. I still see that information on my Outlook for Mac calendar but it’s organized in a much more confusing way, with times on the y axis and blocks of color for each person’s calendar on the x axis. Everything is squished together and it's very hard to tell whose schedule…

  11. Parent folder should show unread email count for sub folders

    With lots of folders in Outlook, the side panel can get very long. So it can be necessary to embedded folder in folders. For example - a project 'sub-folder' within a client 'parent' folder. However, currently, if the parent folder is collapsed, the unread email count does not include unread emails within sub-folders; it only includes unread emails within the parent folder. This means it's entirely possible for a collapsed parent folder to show zero unread emails whereas subfolders within the parent folders (which won't be visible as the parent folder is collapsed) could have lots of unread emails in…

  12. Allow adding calendar and contact buttons to the mail pane

    Currently, customizing the button bar seems to be possible inside the same category only. That way, I can no longer add the "address book" button e.g. to the mail view, essentially taking more clicks to achieve simple things like looking up a contact.

  13. todoist

    I am sure you want us to use your Todo tool, or what was Wunderlist, but Google allows you to use any. How about Todoist? Another one that may be a no-no, but have to ask... Google apps?

    users could assign certain users to a favourites view. This could be larger tiles of people with greater information and availability info.

  17. ability to pin add-ins in the side pane

    There are certain add-ins, like Salesforce, where it makes sense to keep the add-in open all the time across emails (pinned open). This functionality is available on PC, Mac (older version of Outlook), and the web.

  18. Reduce font size in the Inbox view

    The font size is too large proportionally to all other fonts in the UI.

    Adjusting the existing font size setting applies globally and does not address the proportion issue, making the other UI fonts (which are great at the default size) too small.

    Coupled with the inability to hide message preview text, the current size notably limits the # of items that can be viewed.

    Thanks for your consideration.

  19. Support for working hours in Calendar

    Outlook on the Web and Windows reflects others working hours in the meeting scheduler. This is especially useful when working with people who are in different timezones. Outlook for Mac doesn't seem to support this. It only shows my own configured work schedule but not that of others.

  20. Deleted Junk Mail Sent to Deleted Items Folder

    In the Mac version of Outlook, when a message is deleted from the Junk Mail folder, it is permanently deleted rather than being moved to the Deleted Items folder. This differs from OWA and the Windows version of Outlook. Would like to see the behavior the same across all platforms so users have a consistent experience.
